Alternating Bit Protocol

This is a visualisation of 3643 states and 11115 transitions of a TLA+ model of the alternating bit protocol, as distributed with the | TLC model checker. This model (MCAlternatingBit.tla) was loaded with ProB, the model checker run for a few seconds and then the command "State Space Fast Rendering" with options (scale,fast) was used.

The goal predicate rBit=1 was used; those states satisfying this predicate are shown in orange.
